Goodbye Outlook, Hello Thunderbird
This morning at work I finally got fed up with the extreme lack of adequate performance with Outlook 2007. I use IMAP and to look through my emails (even if some had already been read) was a chore. Load times per email as small as 4Kb could be 5 seconds. That's FOREVER. So, I decided to give Thunderbird another try. I had recommended it to one of our clients, Class Afloat, some time ago as a free alternative. But since I ran Office, I continued using Outlook. No more. I hope to even get off Thunderbird one day and go all Google Apps. Scott Hanselman's guide is great. His podcast on the subject was interesting too.
